The DV8 Grudge Pearl pairs a Composite Hook Pearl coverstock with the Grudge Low RG asymmetric core and is finished with a 500 Siaair micro pad then Crown Factory Compound. This bowling ball provides more length and more backend than it's predecessors by offering an all-purpose ball motion with max flip and exceptional hitting power when used on medium oiled lane conditions. Keep your grudge going with the DV8 Grudge Pearl bowling ball.
The DV8 Grudge Pearl is a great addition to the Grudge Line! The Grudge Pearl for me is less angular than the original Grudge (I use the Pearl at box finish and keep my original Grudge at 1000 Grit). This ball is very clean throughout the lane with great back end motion that retains energy through the pins. Plus this ball is gorgeous and very eye catching going down the lane!

I have had the chance to throw the Grudge Pearl . The Grudge line has been a good ball choice for me when I encounter longer and heavier volume conditions. The Grudge Pearl compliments the Grudge and Grudge Hybrid perfectly .
What I saw with the Grudge Pearl is it has about the same length as the Hybrid and similar ball mothion at the breakpoint for me. With the Grudge Pearl I am 6 - 7 more boards right than the Original Grudge and
4 - 5 boards right than the Grudge Hybrid. The Pearl is easy through the front as the Hybrid for me and doesn't read the lane early . Off the friction is it more angular than the Original and Hybrid.
The Composite Hook Pearl coverstock gives this ball a Flip off the friction like you have never seen.
I highly recommend the Grudge Pearl to anyone who is looking to have maximum flip on Med oil conditions.

The most consistent Pearl ball I have ever owned!! Outside, Inside, slow or bringing the heat I get an amazing reaction that scores!! Must have for any bowler!!
DV8 continue to release equipment that is taking the bowling industry over. The DV8 Grudge Pearl is the newest release in the DV8 line and it definitely does not disappoint!
The Grudge Pearl complements the original Grudge, by giving a bowler more length down the lane with the continuous roll that is known for the Grudge line. Like my original Grudge, the Grudge Pearl is drilled pin up between my bridge. The result is an exceptionally smooth rolling ball through the heads with tremendous amount of roll and hook at the pin deck.
The ball motion is very clean through the front part of the lanes, while maintaining a tremendous amount of hitting power. This ball maintains its motion at the break point and through the pins, with incredible predictability. The Grudge Pearl is excellent on medium to heavy lane conditions, dependent upon your rev rate and lane surface.
DV8 continues to innovate in the bowling industry and the DV8 Grudge Pearl has not disappointed. If you love the original DV8 Grudge, then you have got to have the new DV8 Grudge Pearl. If you don't have one by now, you are just not bowling!!! DV8…Tonight We Bowl! www.dv8bowling.com; #dv8bowling
The Grudge Pearl is one of my strongest balls. It always seems to be clean in the front of the lane and has a lot of energy in the backend. I am always amazed how controllable it is. I don't normally like a skid flip reaction, but this ball has changed my opinion! I am able to use this ball on many different lane conditions, even when the backends are dry! I highly recommend this ball on medium to heavy oil. It is so fun to see it flip and drive through the pins!
